Sky Glass also arrives with hands-free voice controls, so you don’t need to hunt for a lost remote down the back of your sofa – you can shout out requests. The custom-designed 4K TV packs sensors that can detect a presence in the room.
When this happens, Sky Glass can turn on automatically and show a slideshow of recommendations based on your viewing history, including new boxsets from Netflix, upcoming matches on Sky Sports, new arrivals on Sky Cinema and Disney+, and more. Sky Glass also arrives with a sleek new user interface and a new way to manage your recordings that ensures that you’ll never run out of space.
Sky Glass, which the firm says is a television that “only Sky could make”, arrives in a choice of five different colours – Ocean Blue, Ceramic White, Racing Green, Dusky Pink, or Anthracite Black. The variety of colours means your new 4K TV should blend into the décor of your home. Sky will include a new redesigned remote in the same colour.
Sky Glass starts from £13 a month for the 43-inch television, which is a ridiculously reasonable monthly fee for an all-in-one television. While you don’t have to subscribe to Sky’s telly bundles (you can just buy Sky Glass outright, like you would with any other television in your local electronics store) it makes sense that you’d want to watch the latest must-see US dramas on Sky Atlantic, Sky Sports and blockbusters on Sky Cinema if you’re considering purchasing a Sky-designed television for your home.
